About This Dish

It's the little things in life that make big differences. And a little avocado makes a big difference for... well, for most meals. That holds true for the classic egg salad, too. Rather than spooning it between two slices of bread, spoon it into half an avocado and dive in to something a little bit different and a lot more delicious.
